They sell cereals, fruits, and vegetables. With the goal of increasing their capital, the group members decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their eighth solidarity (group) loan cycle.
Ms. Korotoumou (the woman sitting in the second row all the way on the right in the photo) is a major rice seller in the town of N'gara and its surroundings. She intends to use her loan to buy two sacks of rice from the farmers at the market fair in Konodimini.

Ms. Korotoumou hopes to realize an average monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA with this loan, which will be used to reinvest in her business and provide for the children in her household.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
